Recommend me a Netbook/Laptop

Postby Tim Burton » Fri Apr 20, 2012 6:08 pm

I need a laptop or a netbook (or Ultrabook). I need it to have 4-5 hours of battery. It must play 1080p and if possible I'd like to some basic games. Nothing serious like Deus Ex:HR, but stuff like Torchlight, Memoir 44 and Galactic Empires II.

It must have BT and a webcam for Skype since I'm in the military and use it to talk to my parents and my girl.

I'd like it to be 11 or 12 inches, I can fit a bit wider laptop in my bag, but not much. I presently own an Asus 1000HE, I love it, but it's getting long in the tooth.

I'm partial to Asus, but open to anything.

Thanks,

I don't think anyone other than iPad 3 has a screen that small with 1080P resolutions. If you do find something like that I'm sure the price would give you sticker shock.

Wow after looking on Newegg this is the closest laptop with your wanted specs... :shock:

Oh, I don't mind it the resolution is bigger, I just want it to play 1080p videos. My Asus 1000HE can't play that resolution of video and it sucks.

Since that's the case you're best bet is probably an AMD APU (aka A Series). DXVA of video files and can probably handle most games at lower resolutions.

Perfect! Thanks, I'll look for that.
